9/11 Memorial Climb

Friday, September 11, 2020

Join us as we climb the steps at the McKinley Monument in memory of those 343 Firefighters that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Starting @ 8:46 am, the time the first tower was struck, continuing until we reach the equivalent of 110 stories (1980 steps). We invite all first responders & members of the public to join us. Firefighters, please bring your own gear if you wish to climb in turnouts and/or airpacks. Please do not feel that you have to finish the climb to participate, every step counts! Check in at the Canton Fire tent. We will provide badges for participants to wear. Each badge will have the name and picture of a firefighter who perished on that tragic day. Please RSVP on the event page to be sure that you receive announcements and further details. Water provided by Canton Firefighters IAFF Local 249. A special thank you to McKinley Presidential Library & Museum for your support in allowing us to host this event at your facility.
